Now – the first circuit U.S Court of Appeals has ruled that citizens have a right to film government
At least one Republican has Gotten the Message
At least one Republican has gotten the message. Senator John Thune from South Dakota told a local newspaper that if he’s learned one thing during this August recess holding town hall meetings with constituents – it’s don’t cut Medicare and Social Security. Thune told the paper that that message is one that he’ll be taking back to Washington, DC. Of course – the rest of the Republican Party still doesn’t get it.
A “For the Rich, By the Rich” Economy
There’s more evidence of a widening wealth inequality gap in America thanks to 30-plus years of Reaganomics.

Transnational corporations have a secret they don’t want you to know about

“TARP” was just the tip of the iceberg in public funds going to the banksters
Homeowners in America are still screwed.
